In his first Summit meeting since being re-elected last month, the Prime Minister has secured a "working dinner" with Mr Trump and his most trusted advisers in Osaka, Japan, on the eve of this year's G20 talks.

With a weakening Australian economy, Mr Morrison and the Reserve Bank of Australia governor are growing anxious over the suppressive effects of current and threatened trade tariffs the Trump administration has slapped on Chinese imports to America.

Scott Morrison and Donald Trump discussed the trade dispute between the US and China at the G 20 summit in Osaka. Morrison dined with Trump and senior American officials on Thursday night. He spoke with the Chinese president at the summit on Friday, and the prime minister said he raised

Soon after landing in Osaka, Mr Morrison, his Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, Trade Minister Simon Birmingham and Australia's ambassador to Washington Joe Hockey will enter their meeting to stress what Mr Morrison calls the "strength and candour of the Australia-US relationship".

The US President is expected to be flanked by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, trade representative Robert Lighthizer and national security adviser John Bolton.

Mr Trump's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump is also due to attend the talks.

In recent weeks the Prime Minister has been blunt in his assessment of the damage the US-China trade war is inflicting on the world economy, including Australia's, by creating uncertainty and an investment slowdown by major firms.

Donald Trump's trade war with China causing collateral damage, Scott Morrison says ahead of G20 Summit

Donald Trump's trade war with China causing collateral damage, Scott Morrison says ahead of G20 Summit Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison will warn the global trading system is under real pressure as the relationship between China and the US continues to deteriorate.

US and China will resume trade talks ahead of a meeting between their leaders at a G 20 summit next week, US President Donald Trump has said. The two countries have been fighting a damaging trade war over the past year. The Chinese president said he was prepared to meet with Mr Trump at

U . S . President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed on Saturday to proceed with trade negotiations after a series of escalations to their Chinese President Xi Jinping and U . S . President Donald Trump chat at a G - 20 event a day before their highly anticipated bilateral meeting .

"The collateral damage is spreading," he said in a speech in Sydney on Wednesday.

"The impact of any further deterioration of the relationship will not be limited to these two major powers."

In the same speech, made before leaving Australia for the G20, Mr Morrison also signalled his intention to run a foreign policy that recognised its historical ties to Washington, but not to Beijing's exclusion.

"We will play our part. We will not be passive bystanders [on helping manage China-US relations]," Mr Morrison said.

On his talks with Mr Trump in Osaka, the Prime Minister intends to follow up that message with a reminder that "Australia and the United States have different but complementary roles to play in the Indo-Pacific".

Tariffs, Iran and North Korea could be on the agenda

Securing the Trump meeting — among the President's first in a hectic three-day schedule in Japan and South Korea — is diplomatic recognition of Mr Morrison's enhanced presence on the world stage and the validating effect his May 18 re-election victory has in the eyes of others.

US President Donald Trump and China President Xi Jinping will meet on Saturday to discuss trade relations. Both sides stand to suffer if the Trump administration raises taxes as it has promised, but Chinese leadership, although publicly hopeful, seem sceptical that a deal can be reached.

The Prime Minister may choose to use it to advance other arguments too, including a request that Mr Trump not back down on his decision in April last year to exempt Australia from punitive steel and aluminium tariffs designed to protect American jobs in those industries.

Australian industry has been alarmed by recent US media reports that Australia's tariff-free status could be under review by the White House.

The presence of trade representative Mr Lighthizer offers an opportunity for Mr Morrison to make his case for ongoing exemptions, which would need to be weighed against the risk of arousing Mr Trump's strong protective instincts, especially towards the metals and manufacturing industries.

But the evening meeting in Osaka will not be restricted to trade and economic matters — the Prime Minister has also flagged his intention to discuss the flare-up between the US and Iran in the Middle East and North Korean de-nuclearisation.

Both of these security flashpoints will be features of talks between all leaders at the G20-proper, held over Friday and Saturday.

At the end of the Summit, Mr Trump will travel to South Korea, where a presidential visit to the de-militarised zone (DMZ) between South and North is widely expected as a possible precursor to another round of talks between the US leader and dictator Kim Jong-un in the future.
